About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Good Morning All
When I got back from UK the village had put up their Nativity  in the square by the church.

I love walking around this traditional scene.
It is all enclosed behind mesh and this year all the figures look like they have been painted.

I took pictures as I walked round and had to poke the camera lens through the mesh.

I tried to capture all the different scenes.

This is Roman soldiers.

Some of the plants are real too.
        Little tiny  cactus.

 People washing their clothes in the stream.

The one below I had to make bigger to show you the detail.
All the animals in the stable next door to the stable where the manger is.
Baby Jesus  born and people on their knees worshipping.

The attention to detail is amazing -
all the food on the table looks yummy.

Women making bread and baking it in the stone oven at the side of the house.

The animals -  a dog sat by the door and the chickens picking about in the grass.

A quick message for Nancy one of my followers.  Meeting on Friday 18th for slim and craft.

This is absolutely beautiful puts a great deal of shame on the English efforts for a Nativity scene.

Hi Wendy
What a beautiful scene they have created again. Dare say we wouldn't be allowed anything like that over here as it wouldn't be politically correct!
Fab photos.
